As with most organizations, we have an official mission statement… The Christian Association at the University of Pennsylvania (CA) is a community of hospitality, service and advocacy, and faith exploration. We strive to live out the Gospel message -- to bring God's love to Penn students (both undergraduate and graduate students), faculty, staff and neighbors. We welcome every person into our doors regardless of religious affiliation, orientation, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race or gender. …but we also pay a lot of attention to how that statement gets translated and lived out by students. So, we have a student version as well

The Christian Association is a welcoming community where all students are invited to explore their faith and what it means for their lives. We are a home away from home for students, a place to come if you are looking for an intense discussion, somewhere to study or hang out, a chill worship, or just a free home-cooked meal.
